Walter Posted August 17, 2006 Posted August 17, 2006 Hi. I've had my system for almost a year now and things have been working fine. A few days ago, I powered off the system for the first time in months to upgrade the DVD burner. When I first powered it on, there was a loud noise coming from the system so I powered it off, removed the cover and check on things again. After looking for cable in a fan and not finding anything, I got some compressed air and shot it into the spinning chipset fan. That cleared it up and so I didn't worry about it. This morning (about a week after the install) I come to the machine and it is grinding away again. After tapping the case a little, it stops again but now I'm wondering how long that is going to last. so... my actual questions are: a) What is the warranty on these motherboards? I looked at the original box it came in and the manuals and didn't see. B) Can I just replace the chipset fan with a third party fan? If so, can someone recommend something that will fit?
